a fourth day of hearings. nbc's jim maceda joins us from london. what can we expect today? >> reporter: good morning, mara. that's right, we may learn in the coming hour if oscar pistorius, that world famous double amputee sprinter will be freed on bail or not. i may because before that happens the prosecution and defense will be making their final argument, and based on the past three or four days that could take all day. not getting bail, mara, would clearly be a blow to pistorius. he and his coach want to get back on the track. they want to prepare mentally for this trial. but also because the momentum seems to be going so much in pistorius' favor especially after yesterday's bombshell when we learned that the lead investigator, the guy laying out the case against pistorius is himself facing seven charges in a case of murder dating back to 2009. now, the defense has already picked apart the investigator's facts to the point that he had to admit that pistorius' story is plausible that he shot and killed the girlfriend, reeva steenkamp by mistake, thinks her an intruder through the ba
